in the battle ground state of florida, but not before many counties saw a record, gigantic lines. and phil keating joins us from tampa, and the numbers. it was crazy yesterday, phil. >> absolutely, reportedly six hour waits at certain locations in miami-dade county outside of the precinct on friday, three and a half hours all day long to stand in line, shuffle forward and finally cost their ballot. the numbers are big despite the fact in 2008 there was early voting on this sunday before election day, this year, there is not. and that's been a point of convention, democrats and democrat leaning groups have called that voting suppression engineered by the republican dominated legislature and governor's office in the state of florida. however, despite those cries, the numbers have been as good as they were back in 2008. take a look at numbers right now. nearly 4 million, this is through friday, nearly 4 million floridians voted early, by early voting or absentee ballot. and the way it breaks down, the most early voters stand in line and cast their ballot, 45% of those people are registered de
virginia and florida. so it could be a big win. and it also could be close. >> good morning. look at that, how beautiful. we are here. we are here. what are we, a day away? this is so exciting. good morning, everyone. >> he said it wasn't going to be close. and then he said it was going to be close. maybe he was talking about president clinton. >> it's monday, november 5th, the day before election day. we have with us mike barnicle, senior political analyst, mark halperin, willie's just walked in. i don't know why you're laughing. >> me? >> no, mike. >> this lighting is disturbing. i don't know who did it. i don't like it. i'm just going to say that right up front. but i'm happy this weekend -- today because this weekend there was a huge sporting event that all the world tuned to. and i can tell you i've never been more proud of the vanderbilt commodores, dudley stadium. >> no, they went on the road and did that. they went to kentucky, to commonwealth stadium. sure. 40-0, 5-4. mika, one more win and vandy's bowl eligible. look how excited mika is. >> that's amazing. >> midas. >> laugh it
will start the morning in florida, campaign in ohio, virginia and wrap up in new hampshire. mr. obama has an advantage in new hampshire and no one knows how it will end tuesday night. >> thank you. >> president obama's campaign is focusing on voter turnout and heavily relying on a familiar face to bring back memories of better days, ed henry joins us live from cincinnati. ed? >> good morning, megan. call it the bubba bailout, president clinton in a final frenetic push. >> right down to fleetwood mac's anthem that bill clinton rode to the white house twice, president obama is cribbing from the play book. >> everybody is playing by the same rules, that's why you believe, you elected bill clinton in '92 and you elected me. >> a mad presidential dash as he went to battle ground from frigid new hampshire, stevie wonder and florida with singer pit bull. the obama camp is confident its ground game will carry the day, in private they're edgy about the battle grounds being so tight they're pushing back on mitt romney's of change. >> we know what change is, and what governor romney is offering ain'
? >> look at ohio, he's up six. virginia, up 21. florida, romney is up five. elections are won in the middle. barak obama had the same type of edge that romney can boast that he has now. remember, obama went on to win 54 to 44 john mccain. look, i think that's the most troubling number and i would point out by these new fox polls as well, it shows it's not just independents that the president is losing. he's actually down nine points among white men. six points among women. and four points among that critical youth vote that propelled him to the white house. all around every demographic, the president's underperforming and especially in that early voting. he has a 1-point -- 14-point deficit to what the president had before. these are all indicators that this election could go in romney's favor. >> gretchen: that's the demographics. let's talk about the issues with regard to the latest polls. who do you trust to handle the economy? juan, on these four fronts, it looks like romney is edging president obama, in some cases big margin, specifically on the economy, 52 to 43 p. are you surprised
of florida, jeb bush, he'll be our special guest coming up at 8:00 a.m. all that plus as we mentioned the new adp employment report. mark zandi will deliver the report to us first on cnbc. let's get over to andrew with more of today's top stories. >> joe, i think actually we're going to go and talk to mary thompson. as new jersey begins to recover, gas lines are growing. mary thompson is on the new jersey turnpike this morning. mary, good to see you. but there's been a lot of lines and a lot of people talking about this. >> reporter: yeah, very frustrating situation. take a look behind me, you can see the line at the vince lombardi station. and what you can't see is that it stretches down just about a half a mile to the entrance to this rest stop. our cameraman waited in line to get gasoline, he said it took him about 25 minutes. and brian sullivan drove past it yesterday and said the line was at least 200 cars deep. similar scenes like there are being played out all over new jersey as well as long island. residents driving across state lines to find gas, others expressing increasing frustrat
matthews band. i'm looking forward to it. tomorrow sunday in new hampshire. florida. ohio. back to ohio and colorado. monday wisconsin, guess where, ohio after that. and then iowa before he finishes up in chicago where he will spend election eve. ohio we should mention nbc news and the marist organization yesterday put out their poll for ohio has the president up six. a whopping margin compared to what we've seen in the past. our poll even has the president up two in florida. so the obama team certainly optimistic and down the stretch they come to keep that sports metaphor going. >> love it. thank you. >> as for the challenger mitt romney needs to rally his troops and out gun the president's skilled operation. peter zand certificate on a plane right now with the romney campaign. he called this report for us right before takeoff. >> reporter: two stops down, three more to go today as part of the 72 hour final sprint for mitt romney here in dubuque, iowa there's been a unique opportunity on the campaign plane as we prepare to board for colorado. several of the governor's top advisers are

. hoar's the president in new hampshire, before going to florida, ohio, colorado and eventually, wisconsin. the latest real clear politics average shows the president with a razor edge lead, 2/10 of 1%, new polls show the race too close to call in three battleground states. the president is leading in ohio by the margin of error. take a look at the state of the race in pennsylvania. a survey finds both men tied in pennsylvania. in new hampshire, another tie, that's according to wmur, granite state poll there. let's talk about it with david druker, associate politics editor for roll call. have you ever seen a race this tight this, close to the election? >> vinever seen a race where i honestly couldn't figure out what was going to happen. when the votes are counted and we know who won, i think somebody, somewhere is going to turn out to be very wrong because there is lots of conflicting data out there. >> sure, the democrats and the republicans... have vastly different numbers in their own polling. and one side or the other is going to be wrong because they are using the wrong sam

's making stops there every day between now and tuesday. he'll also be in virginia, florida, new hampshire, iowa, colorado and wisconsin over the next 96 hours. mitt romney will be in many of those same states over the next four days, although he's hitting pennsylvania and skipping florida. president obama was back on the trail yesterday after a three-day break to oversee the storm recovery. rallying to a crowd of 10,000 in colorado. the president made what some are saying was a jab at his opponent's tendency to change his mind. >> after four years as president, you know me by now. you know me. you may not agree with every decision that i've made. you may be frustrated at the pace of change. i always remind people that when we did the auto bailout, only 10% of the country approved of it. including, by the way, folks in michigan and ohio. but you know what i believe. you know where i stand. you know i'm willing to make tough decisions even when they're not politically convenient. >> mitt romney also returned to pre-hurricane attack mode yesterday. at a rally in virginia, romney blasted the
there is to do and the future that lies ahead. >> at this hour, one state remains undecided. it is florida. still too close to call and nothing to change the outcome of the race. another big victory for democrats last night was in the senate. democrats not only maintain the majority but picked up a handful seats. among the biggest wins, massachusetts, wisconsin, missouri, ina, connecticut and virginia. senate majority leader harry reid just a short time ago called for bipartisanship. >> the way we get things done is to work together. but we need republicans to help us.i thers compromises not a dirty word. >> but we're already seeing statements like this one from senator mitch mcconnell who said last night, quote, now it's time for the president to propose solutionce of passing the republican-controlled house of representatives. perhaps setting the stage gridl republicans maintained solid;[ majority in the next hour we're expecting to hear of house speaker john boehner. right now, joining me, national syndicated talk show host michael smirconish and joe frolic for "the cleveland plain dealer." th
that is a good thing. the people in ohio, virginia, florida, nevada -- they took this election enormously seriously, understood the unique role they had to play. voters in battleground states understand they have a unique role a lot of us the citizens united to enjoy because they are not and state that will determine the president. >> the super pac's dynamic this time was obviously new and unprecedented. you had senate candidates -- sherrod brown in ohio had $40 million spent against him by super pac's. we had in the last week of our campaign $100 million spent against the president. that is more than the mccain campaign spent in its entirety. remarkable thing. a lot of senate candidates still one. but in house races it had an impact. barack obama, sherrod brown, governors -- they have definition. the spending is a little less nefarious. it's still tough to deal with, but you are not somebody who is now and then somebody drops $4 million on your head will have an impact. we have never seen spending like this. there is a term in politics called gross rating points, the amount of television
. >> it took four days, but florida went for president obam abringing the final electoral college to 332 for the president and 206. and gary johnson scored tens of thousands of votes in key swing states and mixed up the race with those with razor-thin margins. how does he feel now? former governor of new england is here by skype. >> jamie: great to be with you. i really thought we would get more votes. we didn't have the resources to be able to tell, you know, where the votes were going to come from. but the polls would have said, we were guessing we were going to do better. it just got down to the wire and i think people bought into the fact that people have to vote for romneyor obama because it was going to be close. >> even so, with the top two contenders apparently so close. you scored more than 1.2 million votes in key swing states. 32,000 in colorado, 45,000 in north carolina, 47,000 in ojaio and in virginia, 30,000-plus. florida, nearly 45,000. these are states that were very, very scploas these two teams spent a lot of money and yet, tens of thousands of people had to have waited
in virginia. 30 minutes later ohio closes followed by florida, new hampshire and pennsylvania at 8:00 eastern. colorado and wisconsin at 9:00, nevada and iowa where this all started close at 10:00. i already hit the polls this morning with krystal. i wonder if we canceled each other out? >> we look so happy. >> toure took his son with him before work. steve, we shipped him out to battleground virginia so he can cast an aabsentee ballot yesterday before he left. as for the candidates, obama is the first president ever to do early voting. mitt romney was at the polls this morning in massachusetts in an 11th hour decision he added two stops today. they're not official rallies but are billed as him thanking supporters. read into what you'd like. he's heading to pittsburgh right now and was in ohio earlier at the same time joe biden was there. you can see air force 2 sneak in behind the parked romney jet before romney met with reporters. peter alexander is live at romney headquarters if boston. peter, what's the vibe there? >> reporter: s.e., we can show you live pictures of what's happening right
turning out. the president won the cuban vote. the first time infer florida. you saw young voters actually exceeding in most states their turnout from four years ago to the surprise of most analyst. you saw african turn out even though the excitement was four years ago, you saw a real determination there to support the president and you saw african-american rise in a lot of places. that is getting a lot of attention as it should. you have to understand electorate to understand presidential politics. but the president carried most of the key swush suburban counties t. states that are the four heaviest in white population the president won all four of them. so it may be convenient to say we drove good turnout in the latino and african-american community but it's more complex because the president won swing suburban voters and women voters all over the country. presidential campaigns are complicated t. pursuit of 270 electoral votes is complicated. how we won 332 is complicated. it's not just one thing and we'll talk a lot about what that means for politics going forward. one thing i've learn
in on ohio, florida and virginia and i am chairman of the campaign and we intend to take those swing states. >> gretchen: you need a certain number of electorial vote to win the presidency. the projection is obama 290 and obama 248 and popular vote romney would win. if that happens again and having just happened in the last decade, wouldn't there be hysteria about changing the system? >> i think some people would gripe. that happened in the bush-gore election. but you know what, we republicans and most independents play by the rules and everyone knew the rules going into the presidential election electtoral map matters most. and i don't think that i would certainly hope that there would not be a lot of people whining out there. what is brewing in america is going to be enough and plenty to lift mitt romney up . >> gretchen: being what else was brewing was hurricane sandy. what will the be of the storm and people getting out to vote or do you think it will change the way in which people vote? >> i think it possibly could. you look at common wealth of virginia our great governor did a terrifi
carolina and florida, basically have the two candidates either tied, but obama having a one, two or more point lead, as many as five in some state polls, lead over romney. why the discrepancy between the national survey and the state polls? >> the discrepancy is caused by the tremendous number of negative ads that the obama campaign ran against mitt romney over the course of the last six months. a rising tide lifts all boats, but it doesn't lift them quite as far in the battle ground states as it does elsewhere because of all the negative ads that the obama campaign has run. nevertheless, a lot of those states are incredibly close, there are eight states right now that are within less than 3 points. so, who knows which way those are going to go on tuesday. >> paul: there's another a factor here which is interesting in the polling, which is in these head to head surveys in the swing states, president obama typically can't get above 47, 48%, even if he's leading romney by a couple of points, he can't get rise to get to that 50% level and that gives a lot of people in the romney camp confid
carolina was the only battleground state that romney won. >> that is correct. florida is still out. this year is turned out to be irrelevant. what did the republicans miss? >> practically anybody who was brown or black, procter we anybody who believes that immigration is an issue that needs to be tackled. was a case where the republican party is stampeding towards prevalence if they don't catch -- stampeding toward irrelevance up to then't catch new america and the changing demographics. you cannot have a ruling coalition that is virtually all white. you had president obama put together this new rising coalition and put together enough of the old democratic coalition to win. he got more than 70% of hispanics. young voters. if you vote once to twice as a democrat, history shows that there will be a lifetime democrats. the republicans are missing the idea of trying to expand their percentage of a shrinking electorate. this is becoming a majority- minority nation. this is probably the last time the republicans love a chance to win like this. >> let's talk about why this happened. how
hitting key battle ground and hitting them hard. we have wisconsin, nevada, colorado, ohio, florida, and new hampshire. romney with fewer stops planned to so far. the governor planning in virginia, wisconsin, ohio, new hampshire, and colorado as well. we want to bring in thursday's power panel. guys, it's good to have you here. alice, i want to start with you governor romney, as we mentioned, speaking moments ago. he wasn't holding back on his criticisms of the president. take a listen. >> he's got to find something to suggest it's going to be better over the next four years. so he came up with an idea next week, which is he's going to create the department of business. i don't think adding a new chair in his cabinet will help add millions of jobs. >> now that he's back officially on the campaign trail, mitt romney and any post-sandy chivalry is dead. is it risky for him to be doing this so soon in the wake of a disaster, especially in virginia, where they were under orders of sandy's presence coming their way? luckily, they were spared. >> governor romney showed tremendous compassi
, florida representative alan west, finally conceded to patrick murphy in when was one of the most probably high-profile congressional races in the country. are you suggesting, though, that the tea party is not much of a factor anymore? >> well, we rolled back the tea party tide. alan west, for example, ran proudly as a tea party icon. he said that the majority of democrats in congress were communists. that kind of extremism and that kind of rhetoric just doesn't fit. most districts in america. if you've got a fairly moderate congressional district that's interested in solutions, you reject that kind of extremism and that kind of rhetoric. and the more republicans clinging to that kind of tea party extremism, the less relevant they will be, the more likely it is they will lose their seats and we can get back to the business of moving america forward and solving problems, not creating more problems. >> new york congressman steve israel, good of you to take time on this day before thanksgiving. >> happy thanksgiving. >> president obama is back at the white house this morning after his histori
as they get more than 25,000 signatures. the state of louisiana, the state of texas and the state of florida have hit that mark. texas has 94,000 online -- whoo, a whole 94,000 signatures. from the great state of texas, that has 27 million people. >> when i put that petition together i never thought that i'd get so many people to sign on. you know, i got to tell you, i had this conversation last night but the day after the presidential election i woke up and i was basically emotionally in the same state i was the day before the election. i'm a little surprised at the conservatives that are so distraught. american exceptionalism doesn't have anything to do with who is sitting in the white house. it has to do with the fact that everyone woke up the next day, thought about their families, their ambitions, got back to work and went on with their life. i can't stand the emotional freakout. >> you're poetic and i agree with you. >> this is similar to what liberals used to say after the election when they lost, that they're going to move to canada. this speaks more about -- sorry about that. canada
of the country only problem for voting is showers down across parts of georgia and north florida. maybe light shower in wisconsin and out across the west. everything is looking absolutely perfect. maybe a little bit of showers across parts of northern washington. all right. guys. send it back to you inside. >> gretchen: thank you. >> brian: thank you very much. now let's go to your evidence lines. as people try to overcome the devastation left by sandy, areas in new york are overrun by looters. dozen have been arrested for breaking into grocery stores, retail stores and gas stations. in queens some victims say robbers close posed as the electrical workers to get inside some people's homes which has happened in my neighborhood. nypd putting more officers in targeted neighborhoods and some of them have created checkpoints. >> steve: no kidding? meanwhile, a massachusetts town banning the word illegal when describing immigrants. the mayor of summerville outlawed the word after a group of teenagers argued that saying illegal that was hurtful. instead the group wants people to use the term undocum
